 Auto-resizing PDF sprites in a MIAW
PDF Xtra for DirectorWindows, MacintoshOpening & displaying PDFs7.0


Since PDF documents are often designed for print, their ideal viewing dimensions may not match the rest of your Director movie. One solution is to open your PDFs in a resizable MIAW (movie in a window).

This sample movie demonstrates how to make such a full-window PDF sprite that resizes as the MIAW is resized by the user.

Using this MIAW on Windows and Mac OS 9, with PDF Xtra's default behavior on Mac OS X (PDFs always open in a separate viewer application on Mac OS X), allows for a more consistent user experience across both Mac and Windows.
